Tabares, the defending world champion, is still in pole position, but a 4-1-16-18, has cut his championship lead to just seven points, with two races remaining.

Past J/80 world champion, and reigning Spanish champion, Jose Maria Van Der Ploeg scored 8-4-11-1 Thursday, to move ahead of Luke Patience (GBR), in the fight for the podium.

Simon Moriceau (FRA) slipped up in Race 10, but came back with a third in Race 12, to have a chance of making third for the regatta.

Jon Powell (GBR) had his best day, scoring a 6-2-3-4, to move up three places. Rétho Rémi scored an impressive 11-3-4-5, to move up five places.

Chris Body (GBR) came within inches of winning his first J/80 World Championship race, but was just beaten to the line by Brezellec.

Friday is the 14 July, French National Day, expect Brezellec to be coming out with all guns blazing.
